How Taking Off My Yoga Pants Pulled Me Out of My Mommy Funk by Melissa Hurt
Like many moms, I lived in my yoga pants whether I was on the mat or off. My typical schedule for the first two years of my daughter's life was being up and out of bed around 7 a.m. and in bed by 10 p.m., but taking care of and nursing my child every hour whether waking or "sleeping." I was exhausted. I lived for comfort, so I wore the same yoga pants daily. I became sullen.
I saw a counselor for help and remember telling her about my "funk" (depression is too strong of a word – it was a funk). She shouted, "Of course you're depressed! Look at how you're dressed!"
Ouch. It stung.
She explained that to feel well you have to present yourself well. In short, I had to take off the yoga pants and put on some jeans, knit pants or a skirt. I tried it and could not believe how much it lifted my spirits.
Ladies, give it a go. When reaching for your comfy pants, go beyond them for something else. When you put on a decent-looking pair of pants, you go for the blouse that matches. Then perhaps earrings. Maybe lip gloss. You may just feel like your pre-baby self and find a lift in energy.
